Never been there myself, until tomorrow. But paraphrasing and splicing different comments, Fast Eddy has said something along the lines of: "coming from Mississippi Lake on Willow Ridge Road, the wrecking ball is in a meadow on your left before the final climb to Willow peak. It's a bit hard to miss, but people have missed it. It's about 200' off the road as I remember."finlayson said:Could someone please post GPS coordinates (latitude,longitude) of this ball? I don't think I've ever seen it (and I've ridden a lot at Coe).
Are any slackers going to make it? Or are we too limber? I'm off to a C-party also. Let me know, I'll check tomorrow.K-max said:Are you up for this? I'm Christmas partying it up the night before so I won't be up for anything early. Assuming I get over this nasty cold, I'll join you for a ride and some winter ales.
You should feel no shame about Sunday, Nick. That was a BIG ride. Only a smallCHUM said:Towards the very end of the ride we had a choice to climb another couple hundred
feet and go down grapevine....or take the wussy route back by just dropping down
Coit Road to Coyote entrance.....I was the only wuss....DAMN Cramps
With all the long rides I've been doing at Coe this year, the park is getting smaller and smaller!BigLarry said:Got to see lots of new trails, like Coit Dam Trail, Willow Ridge Trail,
Pacheco Creek, .. along with Willow Ridge Rd...

OK. I had it off a bit before. It's NOT near the peak of the road as I thought, but way before (maybe a mile before), near the start of the climb to the peak. It's at a dip where you want to go fast thinking about the next big climb, and some missed it even on this trip until they were called back on the radio.Skyline35 said:Now what are those coordinates for the wrecking ball, Larry? The rains are holding off, the weather looks good for this weekend - what do you say Ross? Want to go out and find that rusty hunk of metal? Maybe try the Mississippi Ridge Trail on the way there?..
